sun came out

and we had

beautiful

filtered light.

Trees 1

 

Fog is

awesome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Sun 1

 

I love

minimalist

images.

They do look better as

large prints

 though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Two Trees

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Arch Trees

 

The group

leaders hate

arches so I

had to shoot a few extra

ones.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Space

 

I live in an

urban area

so the subject

 is the space.

(not the tree)

Space is the

ultimate

luxury.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Grist Mill

 

Ah yes, my

mandatory

postcard shot.

Day 4 - AM  

    Foothills Parkway

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Sunrise 1

 

Images before

sunrise are the

most difficult.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Sunrise 2

 

From the time

the sun rises

above the

horizon, you

only have a couple

seconds to get

the shot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Sunrise 3

 

The sun, the

fog, the trees,

just awesome.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Sunrise 4

 

 

The sun had

 already risen

and everyone

else was

packing up.

To me,

this is the

best time to

photograph.

Trees 1

 

These tree

 images don't even come

close to duplicating

the real

 experience.
